What I Loved:
Kyren the main character was so lovable. He goes through his changes on the path to redemption and I just loved watching that happen.
How I Felt:
Joanna White has done an amazing job of creating a beautiful story that has so many different emotions built in.
It is full of love and heartache, loss and redemption, and sacrifice and betrayal. I was captivated by her writing and her story.
My heart just broke for Kyren the moment the story starts. Cast down from his station as a prince to a lowly slave by his own family. Forced to live and work for them while they treat him like dirt. It was so frustrating and I felt for him.
The book is fairly short and is an easy read with a great story. I would like to see some grammatical errors corrected, but other than that, this is a solid book with an interesting plot!
